I have challenged myself to be the coolest Mom on the block and have the Most Fun Summer Ever so I have been putting together a list of fun activities that I know my husband and kids will love. It’s been a long Winter and Spring. Family projects, illnesses, cancelled vacations, commitments, responsibilities, etc. have all added up over the past six months and now I want my family to just have some FUN! No one likes to party alone so I want to share all of my ideas with you to inspire you to have fun with your family this summer, too. (Maybe you’ll even invite us over to have fun with you!)
As a family, we are going to try to do all of these ideas so we can share the photos and any advice. I’m hoping we can get to them all but even if we don’t, I’ll be adding tips and advice for each of these ideas throughout June and July so put us on your summer reading list, follow us on Facebook, or sign up for Chocolate Cake Moments email newletter so you don’t miss a thing. However, this list is not exhaustive. PLEASE share your summer family fun plans with us because I would love to keep adding to this list. If you have any photos of your family having summertime fun, I’d love to feature them. Send on over to sue (at) chocolatecakeclub.com.
It was important to me that the ideas be simple, creative & most importantly memorable. I don’t want to have to work too hard to have fun and I’m sure you don’t either. These ideas are designed for families with kids of all ages. So here goes!
